My Favorite Paintings at Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing  
8/29/16 Posted 9/1/16

Xu Beihong (1895-1953) was a renown Chinese artist, who was uniquely accomplished in both western oil paintings and traditional Chinese paintings. The museum bears his name, Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing had many of fine representations of his works. One of his most famous oil painting was a portrait titled "Sound of Flute", which, though somewhat veered towards sentimentality, was redeemed by the heroine's shagginess, which transported her to the purer and more primitive and private world. Rather than... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Liaoning Provincial Museum, Shenyang, China  
8/19/16 Posted 8/26/16

The main museum in my hometown, Manchurian city Shenyang, Liaoning Provincial Museum, boasted some magnificent artifacts and Chinese paintings, due to the fact that the last imperial dynasty was originated from Manchuria, and had kept a rich trove of art treasures in Shenyang, especially during and after World War II, when Manchu elites retreated back to northeastern China. Like many cities in China, Shenyang has experienced rapid expansion in the last decade or so, resulting in the move of it... [more]

The exhibition as exhibit in a public trial: Ai Weiwei's Evidence   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Ai Weiwei at Martin-Gropius-Bau April 3rd, 2014 - July 13th, 2014
Posted 5/15/14

Evidence, Ai Weiwei’s largest retrospective to date, opened on April 3rd and that is no coincidence. It was exactly three years ago that day that the most influential artist of China (some argue: of the world) was arrested at the Beijing Capital International Airport and jailed on charges of “economic crimes.” He was released after eighty-one days but has since been forbidden to leave Beijing. For every step outside his own courtyard he has to ask the police for permission, effectiv... [more]

Posted 3/28/14

In 2014 Beijing's 798 Art District has transformed from its genesis as a haven for artist studios. The district is not only a showcase for star artists churning out work for an eager market, but also less recognized work of widely varying quality, and even kitsch souvenirs. With THE UN-OFFICIALS | art before 85, showing until April 12 at Boers-Li Gallery, visitors are treated to an idiosyncratic treasure of a recent Beijing past that in these environs seems far more distant. Dozens of works from... [more]

Ai Weiwei, 2012, Photo by Gao Yuan, courtesy of Martin-Gropius-Bau Chinese artist Ai Weiwei is about to celebrate the opening his largest exhibition ever, and he wants Chinese President Xi Jinping to see it.

"It would be good if the president found the time to go visit th... [more]

Treasure in Liaoning Museum, Shenyang, China  
12/1/13 Posted 12/1/13

Liaoning Museum in Shenyang, my home city in Manchuria, the capital city of Qing Dynasty before the Manchu people conquered the Han China inside the Great Wall and made Beijing new capital, had many art and craft treasures, mostly as the legacy of the former imperial glory. Due to the fragility of those Chinese paintings and calligraphy on silk or paper, and my dwelling in the U.S. for more than half of my life now, I hadn't the chance to view most, if any, of those the most valuable works collected in t...

Industrial Museum of China in Manchurian Shenyang  
11/20/13 Posted 12/1/13

Last September, when I returned to my home city, Manchurian Shenyang, I visited the Industrial Museum of China, located in the Tiexi District, which was the industrial quarter of Shenyang and the heart of the heavy industrial in China since 1910s through 1980s, when the changing demographics and economy model left the district behind, culminating in about 75% unemployment rate in 1990s in that district, whose population's plight was documented by a heart-retching documentary, Tie Xi Qu: West of the Tra...

Maomerabilia Is Hot Property  
11/26/11 Posted 11/26/11

    By FRANCISCO LITTLE (c)   There is money in Mao. While the nation opens its arms to commemorate the 60 th Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China in 2011, historic items spanning the past decades are changing hands with a fervor matching that of the Olympics’ souvenir hunters. And leading the memorabilia pack by a country mile is anything bearing the familiar face of Chairman Mao Zedong. Whether the revered father of the nation is adorning a porcelain bust, silk scarf, coffee mu... [more]
